This event is all ages
Chris Kasper is an American songwriter with a distinct "timeless" sound that has gained him a loyal fanbase in his hometown of Philadelphia and around the country. He has released 3 solo records since living in Philly (FlyingBoy '06, Chasing Another Sundown '09, The First Hundred Years are the Hardest '11) and 1 collaborative effort with Bluegrass/Folk ensemble, The Lowlands (Bark and Twine '07). With his 3rd solo record now available, you may rethink your idea of "singer-songwriter". Having toured with, and opened for, local heros Amos Lee and G. Love, as well as a ton of other national acts, Chris is setting his sights on touring full time.
Hezekiah Jones is the musical nom de plume for Raphael Cutrufello and a band of like-minded musicians crafting alternative folk music. His catalog of songs sometimes sounds like a post-apocalyptic White Album, as covered by Sufjan Stevens. The biting, sometimes campy vibe only serves to intensify the blow of his sucker-punch ballads. Songs are filled with outlandish characters, imagined landscapes..., ringing harmonies, and baroque instrumental flourishes, but never disconnect from the tangible feelings at their center.
